Cork bidding for 4 in a row, By Fr. Liam Kelleher.

Cork bidding for 4 in a row, By Fr. Liam Kelleher.

On this Saturday Cork travel to Kilmallock in Limerick,
bidding to capture their 4th Munster under 14 title in a
row, the game is timed for 2.30. Waterford provide the opposition.
Cork have had just one game to date in the Championships
while Waterford have had the benefit of 4 games. In their
semi-final against Kerry Cork put up a tremendous performance
winning on a scoreline of 8 – 10 to 4 – 4. While the forwards
led by Amanda Murphy, who incredibly is going for her 4th
in a row as well, ran riot against the Kingdom girls.

The performance of the backs was a concern to the Cork management.
That problem seems to have been sorted out, in their recent
All-Ireland under 14 blitz win in Mullingar Cork played
5 games winning them all, scoring 14-34 while conceding
a mere 2-6. Cork will be well motivated for this game and
judging by their form to date they will take a lot of beating.
Nothing can be taken for granted at this level, Waterford
have a great tradition in Ladies football and up to few
years ago they were the kingpins in the Province, now that
the balance of power at underage level has switched to Cork,
the rebel girls will be totally focussed on continuing that
